The same people have apparently gotten lazy in the justifications for NeoCon adventures. The new(old) reasoning for escalating involvement in the Ukraine-Russia conflict is so we can ‘fight’ them over there instead of in the USA. Sound familiar?

They actually think we should believe that the Russian flag will be planted in Paris if we do not accede to their warmonger whims.
This Red Dawn mindset continues to convince people that these political factions actually care about them. Meanwhile, as we fund pensions and salaries in Ukraine so Zelensky can buy another exotic car and send his wife on Paris shopping trips, the CBO has recommended means-testing for VA disability. To help balance the federal budget of course.

We should not spend any money on illegals and dopers until… Read more »
I’m in the same boat as you Chemist and I agree with your way of thinking. I back the warriors, not the war. We’ve got plenty to fix right here at home before we send billions overseas. If they want a battle close the southern border. And not fully funding the VA is a national disgrace. Means testing!
